Recent LA transplants may be unaware of the trials and tribulations of Franki Chan, iheartcomix and his esteemed party known as Check Yo Ponytail (and now Check Yo Ponytail 2).  Mr. Chan, the former DJ partner of Steve Aoki has always kept his eyes and ears close to the street and in the mid ‘ots he birthed the event series CYP.

Striving to create much more than a mere concert – Franki introduced many acts to the SoCal market that later on broke out to larger success.  A few years later – CYP went dark.  In 2010 – it reemerged and rebranded as Check Yo Ponytail 2 – this time with the help of Danny Johnson and his Media Contender Top Shelf family – and the event quickly climbed the ranks as one of SUPERGOOD’s favorite reoccurring event series.   Known for eclectic, but well crafted line-ups that featured some of the hottest artists that majors and print publications were not even familiar with yet, CYP2 reestablished itself as a staple of emerging music culture.  Just check out some of CYP2′s concert posters to digest how dope their talent curation has been.   There was a CYP2 event that featured Skrillex, 12th Planet, Diplo and Caspa DJing at The Echoplex….in 2012!!!  Or how about Danny Brown, Kid Sister and Party Supplies!  Boys Noize and Harvard Bass!  Drop The Lime, Classixx and MNDR!   Just so many amazing collections of talent…

Tonight CYP2 celebrates three years of being back at your favorite concert venue and they’ve recruited party animal Andrew WK and Alice Glass from Crystal Castles, along with guest host Chuck Inglish.

A tip of the SUPERGOOD hat goes off to Franki Chan, Danny Johnson, Steve Lynn, Trevor Banta and the rest of the iheartcomix and CYP2 team.     Thanks for keeping LA’s scene the best in the states.  Enjoy your celebration!  Buy tickets here.
